To clear up some confusion and answer some questions that have been asked:

The band have effectively split up, they are not just taking a short break. However, everything's amicable and although there are no plans to get back together, it's not an impossibility.

As people have been guessing, the main reason for stopping is simply that everything to do with the band became too difficult; running the band as a business, running the record label, juggling jobs and band, personal pressures... the list goes on.

The website & forum will remain online and will come with some surprises as soon as I get some time to look at doing them (no, not downloads!).

Hideous Records is temporarily closed whilst we work out what's going to happen to it. The website is now closed.

do you think any of the old singles will get released digitally? i know they'll have issues with who owns the release, but one can hope for a wee cheeky stuck in my throat on i-tunes

That would be entirely up to the labels that released those singles. I can say that LSHO won't be as Badmusic is very much dead. Stuck in my Throat is unlikely because of the joint ownership complications between Integrity and XtraMile.

does that mean I cant buy pilot anymore?

You should still be able to get hold of Pilot - not for the next few weeks though whilst we work out how everything is going to be handled.

Quote:
If Hideous is gone, does this mean supplies of INWT are going to start disappearing off shelves? What happens to the downloads of the latest album and singles? Or are these unaffected?

Sorry - slight misunderstanding on my part here - Hideous is taking a short break from selling stuff whilst a decision is made on its future. We'll let you know when we know what's going to happen. I would've thought (guessing) that downloads etc will keep going(??)

What will become of the Reuben store? (Not Hideous records, I'm talking t shirts and other such clothing apparel)

Don't know at the moment.

--

If people have more questions I will try to answer them by editing this post so that everything's kept in the same place.

I will try to answer questions quickly but please be patient as I won't be online at home until next Weds (11th June) as we've just moved house.

Ric

It's pretty sobering when you read it like that...

If this means a 100% up to date discography complete with hilarious stories and interesting factoids and what not, I'll be happy.



Anyway, cheers for keeping us all in the know ric. You've done a sterling job over the years.

p.s. What will become of the Reuben store? (Not Hideous records, I'm talking t shirts and other such clothing apparel)

I agree. It's much better just to be honest, with no ambiguity.

But now we know.

Cheers for making the effort with the forums Ric.

I think the term is 'jam' rather than rehearsal. We shall see what the future holds.
